It helps if you have Xorg's Xlib. Otherwise, you can just define
them away in your CFLAGS:

        -DXutf8DrawString=XmbDrawString \
        -DXutf8TextExtents=XmbTextExtents \

But I Wouldn't recommend it unless you have a UTF-8 locale.
Non-latin1 window titles are always encoded in UTF-8, so you'll
probably wind up with a lot of garbled nonsense if you don't.
